Tailing the Komets

Do not adjust your set!

Komets and Wings are playing on orange ice tonight.

A couple of updates: Mikael Tam has a bad shoulder injury and is going to be out for a significant amount of time.

Bob Chase has a really bad cold and may miss the weekend, so Shane Albahrani will be filling in at least tonight and tomorrow.

What are the dimensions of the Kalamazoo rink? I always heard it was smaller than NHL standard.

Depends whom you ask. Wings representatives say they have measured it as 200 X 85. Players swear it's shorter and narrower than that. I also think Indy's rink is significantly smaller than regulation.

Now, Komets will tell you the Memorial Coliseum is significantly larger than normal, but I have personally measured it and it came up 200 X 85.

Indy seemed regulation width but maybe not long.  Kalamazoo is like playing in a shoebox.
